Nordic Talks: The Role of First Nations Communities in the Clean Energy Transition [Webinar]

featuring Ebony Bennett and Rod Campbell


Australia has all the ingredients for a green industrial revolution; abundant rare minerals, plentiful wind and sun, manufacturing capabilities, while Sweden is a global leader in green industry practices and production.

But how can First Nations communities participate in the clean energy transition?

This talk will unpack how Sweden and Australia can better balance the competing interests between the ‘green gold rush’ and the interests of First Nations communities.

This is one of a five-part special series of Follow the Money presented by the Nordic Talks series, presented by the Nordic Policy Centre at the Australia Institute, with support from The Nordics, a project under The Nordic Council of Ministers.
